that. >> i'm grateful that the government promotes giving by giving tax breaks and things but of course there is incentive there. what is so beautiful about this and shocking is that, first of all they didn't have to do it. secondly these are anonymous, this tips for jesus is anonymous on one hand. secondly, they're not getting any breaks for it. there is no tax-exempt status when you're giving to a waiter or waitress. so i think it is beautiful. another thing i think is very interesting is that, in the time of christmas giving and new year's, sometimes we can do just what we feel good about ourselves but when you see this type of giving, you say, it is not just about me feeling good but for the sake of the other person. that takes it to whole new level. jenna: one wonders if the credit card companies accept signature, tips for jesus. >> maybe jesus will pay the bill too, right. jenna: "huffington post" described as a mission to show the world what christian generosity is supposed to look like s that true, christian generosity at work. >> the fact somebody out doesn't do it doesn't mean
